A new Group aimed at Improvers and Social Cylists, twice a month at Cantley Park Car Park, leaving 9.30am and returning around midday. Distance around 10 miles, tailored to the ability of the Group, on a mixture of generally quiet roads, paths and tracks radiating from Cantley on varying routes. Road Bikes will not be suitable on some of the tracks, and a basic level of cycling fitness is required.
Regular rides are planned to commence in 2020,first on 6th and 20th January. If there is enough interest shown prior to that date an earlier “taster” may be arranged.
Helmets, HI VIS and properly maintained bikes are compulsory, and the Group size will be limited to 15, with no more than 12 on any one ride. An experienced Convenor/Leader will lead each ride with a tailer, split into 2 sections if needed and we will aim to have a first aider/kit on rides, and we already have an approved Risk Assessment process.
As the Group becomes established we will encourage participation of riders in the formulation and leading of routes to keep the variety as wide as possible, and share the load on leads,but that will not be compulsory.
There will be a strong socialising element on rides,with a coffee stop, and chances to chat on some of the quieter parts of rides on paths and tracks. The essence of this Group will be to enjoy cycling at a modest level,and there will not be long hills or unduly difficult road or track conditions.
Fore more information please contact the convenor.
